Wildfires – California, USA

Pacific Gas & Electric Co. restored power to more than 20,000 customers in Northern California after the company shut it off over the weekend to guard against wildfires amid a heat wave that fueled a blaze still burning in a rural area, officials said Monday.

About 700 firefighters are battling a wildfire that erupted Saturday afternoon in Yolo County and spread quickly across brush-covered hills fueled by strong winds and hot temperatures. The fire near the community of Guinda, which is about 78 miles north of San Francisco, remains at 3.4 square miles. It was 30% contained as of Monday, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said
